Anti-depressant.... I say yes

For about two months now I have been taking a anti-depressant pill, for the first month the one I was on helped a little but then the doctor put me on one that really has worked. I just can't believe how it has helped me. I have been getting up in the mornings and staying up, my house is clean, and I am happy. We are still going through a rough time with money but I am taking it pretty well. 
I just wish I would have stayed on one a long time ago, why did I waste so much time not being happy?? Another great thing is I am not worried about what others think of me, any other time I would be stressing some issues I once again am having with the "wonderful church of Mayo" but now I just don't care. I am just kinda shocked at how I am handling things. Yay me....... It is like now I really truly get that I don't need anyone in my life that does not want to be here. I love my kids so much, I love my husband, I love my parents and the rest of the family and friends that want to be in the life of Amanda Tuck. I am me, not who I use to be but so much better!!
 On to more great news, Michael started a new job last Monday, it is about a 40 minute drive but the money is so much better, the health insurance is awesome, and the have lots of other great benifits. We are for sure in the hole with money but I am sure with a little time with will recover and we will be ok!!

Michael's broken foot...

I surely have not posted in a while with good reason.. As the title of this blog says, my husband broke his foot. As of now he has been out of work for 7 weeks. We have been really hurting but once again our wonderful God has stepped in and took great care of us. My wonderful God amazes me all the time. 
Our set back was that even though you get paid short term disability that you pay for as you work, you must wait for the work to give you the papers, then you take to  the doctor, then you take back to your work, then they fax it over and the company has to go over every thing. It took over 4 weeks for Michael to get his first pay check from them. He did get paid for a week after his injury, sadly that used all of his vacation days but what else could we do!?!?!?!
I have had to hold my head up high through this ordeal because I have had wonderful people in our life give us money and feed us. You can't help but feel helpless ,I must also mention how tired I have been taking care of three kids and a husband but that is what  a marriage is. I know he would do the same. Sadly we had to give up our beach house we almost had paid for but I know better times are just around the corner... I am so thankful to My Wonderful God for all he does for me....

Pictures, pictures, pictures.....

 This year for Christmas, Michael bought me a camera. Not just a camera but a Cannon Rebel. A professional camera! That is something I have always wanted but we have never really had the money for it. I have always been told I do a great job at taking pictures and editing pictures with just a normal camera and I always told Michael that if I ever got a nice one I would try my best to make a second income from it.  The LORD has really been by my side since I got my camera and have been trying.  I absolutely love taking pictures and LOVE to see their faces when I let them see the GREAT pictures I took!! 

 I know I may not go far but then again I also believe in chasing my dream. I will just enjoy the ride for now and hope that I keep getting to take pictures of people. I feel so grateful that I have got to take the pictures that I have taken. I have posted just a little bit of the work I have done

New Years Resolutions 2013

New Years Resolutions.....
  I haven't blogged in a while but I do want to note my resolutions in hopes that I can read this later and have some accomplishments to record. Here is my original list
 1. Get closer to God, I hope the get my fire back for Jesus. I love God, that is a fact but sometimes I feel that maybe I have lost the "fire"
 2. Lose weight, every one's number one resolution is mine also. I have been doing pretty good, and I just hope to keep doing good.
 3. Recycle more, it is a shame all the plastic bottles and cans we throw away or burn so since the new year, I have been doing a lot better with this. Not to mention with all the cans my family goes through I hope to cash in on them before we go on vacation this summer.
 4. Fix my house up, I am grateful for my home because my husband works hard for what we have and with that being said money is tight with us. My goal is to get my home looking nice and find cheaper ways to do it.
5. Spend more quality time with my kids, I think I already do pretty good at this but I know my babies grow so fast and I just want to make as many memories as I possibly can.
       So there you have it, my top 5 News Years Resolutions for 2013!! I have been truly working on these 5 little things... maybe in a month or so I can remind myself to reread this blog and see how I am doing.....

Wordless Wednesday... Mudbogging

In the hospital once again...

    Over the past weekend, we enjoyed another stay in the hospital. 
Friday morning, Michael was on his way to work and after he dropped the kids off at school he had to stop and throw up. He had been really sick for about three weeks so he decided to go the the emergency room. When he got there and let them know he was a diabetic, they checked sugar and it was off the charts. After blood work it came back to be over 700. They made a choice really quick to admit him in the hospital. We did not actually get a room in the hospital till about 11:00 that night because the hospital was full.
After we got a room, he ended up staying there till Monday morning. It is now Wednesday and his sugar is still above 200.

 I worry so much about him, I just can't imagine my life without him. I just pray that I will get the Michael back that feels good. He is just always so tired and not feeling good. He has been really watching what he eats but this time he was not really eating bad before his sugar spiked and the doctors are not really sure why it did spike so high. I just pray that we will both get to raise my precious kids, and Michael will continue to watch what he eats.
